Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures present a PG-13, 149 minute, Action, Adventure, Fantasy, directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely with a theatre release date of April 27, 2018.

 

Only the privileged are saved by the great Thanos (Josh Brolin) but then again no one in the eyes of Thanos is privileged. In a battle between Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the ultimate mean green machine the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) all three try to take down Thanos and his henchmen but are not quite successful. You see Thanos has one plan in mind and that plan involves collecting all six infinity stones, he already has two, and once he has six the reality of mankind will no longer exist and he will stop at nothing until his quest is achieved.

Back on Earth, Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberland) and Wong (Benedict Wong) are visited by an unexpected visitor, The Hulk, but that’s not the worst of it Thanos’s henchmen are also on earth and battle to retrieve the third stone. All three Avengers realize they need help so they seek out Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) to help fight the evil Thanos and his henchmen. Soon thereafter they seek Vision (Paul Bettany) who is in Scotland with Wanda Maximoff the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and they ask Tony Stark to call Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Captain America, with some coaxing he does and soon he and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) are on board. Yet once a spaceship lands in New York City it does not take long for Spiderman (Tom Holland) to exit his school field trip and explore what the heck is going on in his city. In another epic battle between so many Avengers and Thanos and his henchmen all of their power cannot withstand all of his especially since he is collecting the Infinity stones and one bigger problem the Hulk is having performance issues.

Out in space The Guardians have entered a field of death but not too long into this frightful sight one man attaches himself to their ship so Star-Lord, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (voice of Vin Diesel) and Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) all decide to take him in and much to their unknowing surprise it is Thor. He, Groot and the “rabbit” otherwise known as Rocket set off on a journey in a shuttle leaving the others to explore their own course of action. When Gamora has a flashback moment to her childhood we find out more about her than anyone ever knew! Thor is given a new hammer by a dwarf (Peter Dinklage), Gamora faces here fears and her task to save her sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), and several others reach Wakanda to seek the help of T’Challa, The Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and his warriors. Meanwhile Thanos is in constant battles with many Avengers in many places all for the purpose of collecting those stones.

There is a huge battle on Kawanda where all the results come down to love and death yet throughout this journey to save Earth and basically reality many have lost their lives and their return seems endless and with the click of a finger all is done and disappears like dust in the wind. Do not leave until the final credit rolls since this clip will fill you in on where any of the survivors go from here.

All I can say was I tried to give you a layout above without giving to much away and I will say that everything about this film is pure action, adventure, filled with thrills, high tech CGI and special effects with a great score, costumes, direction, writing, a great mixture of drama and levity around several turns but most of all superb direction and an epic script. There is in my opinion a little loll half way in that made me almost yawn and close my eyes, a matter of fact my friend was snoring until I reached over and smacked him but it doesn’t last long and it surely doesn’t take away from all the excitement that goes on for the other two hours. As for the cast I can’t say I hated or disliked anyone they were all perfection and the way they all came together was brilliant as the story still kept them in their true characters at all times. Even the cameos and supporting characters were spot on from start to finish. There is a lot going on in this story with every character you can imagine well almost everyone played to perfection but I must say Brolin was fantastic if I had to point the finger at one which is unfair because everyone was excellent. There are many unexpected moments that will have you watering at the mouth for the next Avengers get together but only time will tell on who actually shows up! At two and half hours this film kicks ass on the screen and is sure to do so at the box office as well.
